Stay away from Benue state, governor Ortom warns homosexuals

Image
While hosting the Prelate of the Anglican Communion of Nigeria, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, in Makurdi yesterday, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State asked homosexuals to stay away from the state, warning that his administration would not spare anyone caught practicing it in the state.
“Gay lifestyle is alien to the customs, lifestyles, and the belief of Africans and the church, even though it is being promoted in the Western world. I sincerely pray that a revival would spring from Benue State and produce evangelists that would drive evangelization in Africa and the Western world because the personal knowledge of the Lord Jesus is the solution to the decadence sweeping across many nations today.” Ortom said (Vanguard)

US vows to pressurize Nigeria to legalize gay marriage.. how?

Image
People that are not serious. The US Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Linda Thomas-Greenfield (pictured above) has stated that they would continue to pressurize Nigeria until it legalizes same sex marriage. She made this known on Monday July 13 during a live-web chat with journalists in Washington.
"As a government, it is one of the highest priorities and strongest values that discrimination against anyone based on their sexual orientation and gender identity is wrong. We believe human rights should be available to everybody. As a policy, we will continue to press the government of Nigeria, as well as other governments which have provided legislation that discriminate against the LGBT community. This is very much a work in progress, but I think you will agree with me that the law in Nigeria really went far in discriminating against this community but also people who associate with them. So, we will continue to press the government, to press the legislature to chan…

Evil mum who caged her son before starving & beating him to death dies in prison

Image
Magdalena Luczak, the woman who tortured her 4 year old son Daniel Pelka for a period of time, and eventually killed him, has died in prison. Magdalena, 29, who subjected her son to 'incomprehensible cruelty' was found unresponsive in her cell at HMP Foston Hall in Derby at around 7.15am yesterday July 14th. Paramedics attended to her and she was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Magdalena caged Daniel before starving and beating him to death along with her violent partner Mariusz Krezolek in 2012.



Plasterer Krezolek began to despise Daniel after moving in with alcoholic cleaner Luczak. He told pals the child was “retarded” and should be sent to his biological dad in Poland. He said: “It’s not even worth beating him as he won’t feel the pain.” But he repeatedly beat him and kept him locked up for days without food in a box room they had turned into a cell by removing the inside handle.

Krezolek fed Daniel salt after catching him stealing food before forcing him to do squat-thrusts t…

Nigerian man jailed in the UK after he falsely used online photo of a US soldier to dupe 2 women

Image
27 year old Nigerian man, Tosin Olasemo has been sentenced to 4 and a half years in prison by a UK court after he was found guilty of using the photo of a US soldier fighting in Afghanistan to dupe two white women he met on a dating site of £250,000.

Tosin, who lives in Cardiff, UK, set up a profile on match.com using the photo of an unidentified US soldier in uniform, to trick his victims into believing he was serving in Afghanistan. He called himself Captain Morgan Travis to his first victim, and Michael Travis to his second victim and claimed to be based at Camp Joyce but he was actually living in Moira Street in the Adamsdown area of Cardiff.

During online conversations with his first victim, 47-year-old widow Tine Jorgensen, Tosin could see her via her webcam but he refused to show his own face, saying he was not allowed to show his own face because of security issues in Afghanistan, an explanation which looked genuine and acceptable.

Tosin then demanded various sums of money from M…

Pres. Buhari charges security agencies to crack down on Nollywood movie pirates

Image
Statement from the Presidency...
Pesident Muhammadu Buhari has directed law enforcement agencies to step up their efforts to curb the menace of pirates in Nigeria's entertainment industry so that artistes can enjoy the fruits of their labour. President Buhari gave the directive after receiving a briefing from the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Information, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan and her Directors Tuesday in Abuja.

“Nollywood is making progress. We should work with them. Unless they are backed, they will be ruined by pirates who want to reap where they have not sowed. "They have built an industry with their own sweat. It is therefore incumbent on us to give them the necessary support,” President Buhari said.

He charged law enforcement agencies to identify the perpetrators of copyright piracy, their sponsors and collaborators, and bring them to justice. President Buhari also charged the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) and the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN)…

Mum REFUSES to break into expensive BMW to save toddler son from heat

Image
A mum has sparked outrage after she refused to allow firefighters to break into her car to save her toddler son from the heat because the vehicle was too expensive to damage.

The unnamed mother was unable to open the door of her BMW when it accidentally locked itself.
Her three-year-old son was trapped inside and was suffering in the heat as no windows were open.

Firefighters who arrived at the scene in Yiwu city, China, were about to break the glass to rescue the boy, but his mum told them she wanted to wait for a locksmith instead so the car would not be damaged.

Stunned onlookers looked on in horror as the toddler cried inside the vehicle as the oxygen levels rapidly went down.

Despite the mother’s desire to wait, firefighters eventually took matters into their own hands when the boy started to faint and they smashed the glass to rescue him.

One of the firefighters was quoted as saying: “It’s very dangerous to leave children inside cars, especially in such heat.
“It can threaten a child’s…

Lightning strikes Mum holding 2 year old

Image
A New Hampshire mother and her 2-year-old son who were struck by lightning last week have lived to tell about the incident. 
On Tuesday, Kelly Bell and her son Logan headed outside after a thunderstorm, but it turned out the weather wasn’t quite over. “I thought the thunder had passed, it had been 30 minutes since we’d seen anything, so we went outside to see the rain because we like to look at it,” Bell tells Yahoo Parenting. “I said ‘Hey Bubba, look at the rain,’ and then next thing I knew I woke up on the floor.”
Bell says the lightning struck a tree, and then traveled along a metal dog lead, which was connected from the tree to their porch.
“We weren’t touching anything, just standing on the porch,” she says. “The lightning struck the tree, and traveled into the dog lead, which was attached to a nail under our porch. My hand was probably six to eight inches from the lead and the best we can guess is that the lightning traveled into my hand through my wedding ring.” Since Bell was h…
